merkel and basically just missed the whole content. i get to hear the author didn't buy much i can put the responsibility for the escalation on moscow. oh well that obama also called for support. the kids cracked from the protesting the east of ukraine. the call that a move to restore order. but still fresh because the anti government activists continued the town throats of the day in eastern ukraine the hotspots is a tip from a toast which is one of the focal point a cause for an anti kiev sentiment the like the port city of it was to get control of most of the city with auntie kim forces keeping all that is one central square. at least two people to confirm that killed in the fights and friends to this report. units in the role of the year long so i made. on leaving the scene of devastation as well. two boxes he could not recall i am also going to confront our smoldering shells at the moment. in the sense of its main street of the city some two hundred and fifteen system so the answer that happened a few hours ago meant to be a natural gone to the goal is to be the tree to comprisin
, angela merkel, arrived at the white house on friday at a time of unprecedented german power. >> i don't -- this is a very important issue. it will be very important for us to bring the negotiations, very quickly to a close. >> since the economic crisis of 2009 five years ago, germany has been the driving force of the european union's economic policy. from the size, terms, and timing of bailouts for members to the depth and pace of european economic integration. on the eastern front, germany's caution and confronting russia has controlled the pace of eu and american sanctions. and tempered nato's response in the front line countries of poland and the baltics. close ties with china give germany a foothold in asia and beijing a line of influence through berlin. in fact, the increase in trade between china and germany particularly in german exports to china, has exceeded all expectations. germany is china's number one trade partner in the eu. and the top investment destination for german companies is china. based on this emerging economic between china and germany, quote, a special relati
angela merkel here at the white house, and the two made a pretty big announcement, which is that they had agreed to move forward with sectorial sanctions, if the crisis in ukraine worsens after the may 25th election. so i don't anticipate that we'll see any new sanctions prior to that. then a final decision will be based on what is actually happening in ukraine. this is significant, craig, because the u.s. had wanted to enforce sectorial sanctions, sanctions against the larger sectors of russia's economy. but the u.s.'s european allies had been resistant to do so because their economies are so tightly linked with that of russia. and german chancellor angela merkel was really the lynch pin here. the fact they've agreed to move forward with these sanctions means they are on the same page about something about which they were sharply divided a few days ago. in terms of what those specific sanctions will look like, that remains to be seen. interesting to note, president obama did not mention sanctioning the energy sector in his remarks yesterday. the other option that the u.s. has is to poten
. it will boomerang back on their economies. >> germany is the key. >> germany is one key. we have chancellor merkel meeting with barack obama. that is the number one topic on their agenda, along with nsa and tapping her phone. >> what did you say last year -- [laughter] >> exactly. he may know what she is thinking. >> let's talk about the effect on american economies. -- companies. is there any consideration to say, get out of russia? >> that's what's happening. they are the ones doing the outreach. i asked if companies are lobbying for less sanctions. the administration responded, we are going to them and asking them to cut their russian exposure. citibank cut their russian exposure nine percent. still $9 billion, but significant. the white house has been lobbying and getting success with major american companies and ceo's were supposed to go to an economic conference sponsored by putin. some are pulling out entirely or reducing their delegations. >> if he keeps escalating, is there any chance that america would take military action or at least aid the ukrainians with lethal arms? >> two separate
, particularly in odessa. having said that, we also know that president obama and german chancellor angela merkel met earlier this week. they talked about increasing sanctions, toughening those sanctions. but sir, will it be tough enough to stop vladimir putin from moving ahead with his game plan? >> well, there's no evidence that they reached any agreement on the specifics of tougher sanctions, and certainly the europeans' economic dependence on russian energy supplies and their economic relationships with russia, especially countries like germany, make it hard for them to accept tougher economic sanctions. but this is where you need american leadership. the fact is that what putin has succeeded in doing is using military force to change international boundaries on the continent of europe. and if the europeans don't realize it, that puts them in considerable jeopardy. the european union is still on very shaky foundations when it comes to the monetary union, political tensions are rising. and putin is taking advantage of them. i think this is a very bad time for the western alliances. >> right. a
operations. yesterday, president obama hosted german chancellor angela merkel at the white house there they discussed the crisis. >> we're united in our determination to impose costs on russia for actions. as they move to restore order in eastern ukraine, it is obvious to the world these russianbacked groups are not peaceful protesters. they're heavily armed militants who are receiving support from russia. >> our guest is a fellow at the george washington university institute for public diplomacy and global communication. always good to get your perspective. punishing russia, is it going to be financial? is it the president at some point, do you see any indication he's going to be willing to go farther than just financial sanction, waver that may be? >> well, there are limited tools here. putin habs the strongest cards to play in this particular crisis. what happens in ukraine is far more important to russia and to europe than it is, you know, to the united states. the president has been able to inflick some costs on putin. the markets have inflicted some costs on russia. obvious
with angela merkel in washington. together they set a new trigger for broader sector based sanctions against russia. any interference with crucial elections later this month. >> if in fact we see the disruptions and destabilization continuing so severely that it impedes elections on may 25th, you will not have a choice but to move forward with additional more severe sanctions. >> reporter: until now, such penalties against russia's energy, arms, banking sectors have been reserved for a full scale invasion. russia remains undeterred. russian officials say the ukraine's military operations in the east effectively can you tell ella deal reached in geneva last month to diffuse the crisis and they called for emergency session of the u.n. security council to highlight alleged threats to russians inside ukraine. to reassure the west and european allies, they're considering expanding and extending military exercises in the region. defense secretary chuck hagel said all members of the alliance, not just the u.s., must share the burden. >> we must not squander this opportunity or shrink from this chal
between president obama and angela merkel. michelle kai [s] [e] [r] has that store -- libby casey has that story. president obama and angela merkel stood side by side and spoke with one voice. >> if, in fact, we see the disruptions and destabilization continuing so severely that it impedes elections on may 25th, we will not have a choice but to move forward with additional more severe sanctions. >> translation: i agree with the american president. they are not an end in itself. combined with an offer that we want diplomatic solutions it's a necessary second component to show that we are serious. >> what form the sanctions are are not known. >> germany rles on russia -- relies on russia for gas. >> energy flows conditioned during the height of the cold war. the idea that you turp off the tap -- turn off the tap on russian oil and gas exports, i think, is unreallistic. >> barack obama said sanctions could hit the armed sector, finance or lines of credit for trade. the two world leaders held their first meeting in three years, the ukraine crisis bringing them together in a way ta looked
with angela merkel, the german chancellor prieto here are hits -- german chancellor. are his thoughts. [video clip] >> the individual that was subject to the death penalty committed heinous crimes. i said in the past there are certain circumstances in which a that theso terrible application of the death penalty may be appropriate. mass killings, the killing of -- but i have also said that in the application of the death penalty we have seem significant problems, rachel bias, an even application of the unevenenalty -- application of the death penalty. there were situations where individuals on the death row were discovered to have been innocent because of x go that because of that -- the cousin of -- because of exculpatory evidence. i will be discussing with eric -- to give meers an analysis of what steps have been taken, not just in this particular incidence but more broadly. i think we have to ask ourselves some difficult and profound questions around these issues. >> this was on facebook this morning where we posted our question at facebook.com/c-span. daniel lewis writes -- off of twitter
been reported, president obama, german chancellor angela merkel, they met yesterday. they were watching that very carefully. what came of that meeting? >> reporter: well, there were some significant developments, richard. president obama, german chancellor angela merkel announcing that they had agreed to move forward with sectoral sanctions if it continues to worsen after the may 25th election. i don't anticipate that we will see any new sanctions prior to that, but that is the date that you want to be watching for. so essentially another stern warning to russia. now the reason why this is significant, richard, is because there had been deep divisions between the united states and its european partners about this issue of sectoral sanctions. the u.s. wanted to move forward with them. european partners were hesitant because of course their economies are so tightly linked to russia's economy, particularly when it comes to the issue of energy. interestingly, when president obama was listing the various sectors of russia's economy that could be sanctioned, he didn't talk about the energy se
. earlier today, president obama and german chancellor angela merkel held a joint press conference at the white house. the two leaders discussed sanctions against russia over the situation in ukraine and the future of relations between the u.s. and germany. this is 30 minutes. >> good morning, everybody. it is always a great pleasure to welcome my friend chancellor merkel to the white house. germany is one of our strongest allies and angela is one of my closest partners. with her indulgence, i want to start by making two brief comments. first, as president, my top priority is doing everything we can to create more jobs and opportunity for hard-working families for our economic strength as a source of strength in the world. this morning, we learned our businesses created 277,000 new jobs last month. all told, our business is now created 9.2 million new jobs over 50 consecutive months of job growth. the grit and determination of the american people are moving us forward but we have to keep a relentless focus on job creation and creating more opportunities for work and families. there
merkel met the press. angela merkel is here in the u.s. to talk about the situation in ukraine, and what the west can do to try to change the behavior of russian president vladimir putin, and that was what the majority of this press conference today was about on this beautiful spring day in washington. but, watch this. watch the question that president obama got from one of the foreign news agencies that was there to cover the press conference. and that the president called on today. watch this. >> earlier this week an inmate died in oklahoma in what critics have called an inhumane manner because of a seemingly botched execution. human right groups put the united states in the dubious company of china, iran and saudi arabia when it comes to the primitive executions. some countries have expressed their concerns, as well. what are your thoughts on this, and does this raise more questions about u.s. justice and your reputation? >> i don't imagine that president obama was expecting to get a question on that today. especially not from a foreign reporter. but given the chance to ask the presid
into this quite simply that moscow, may well under pressure from berlin, angela merkel, four of the detainees being german, may have decided to take the move and put pressure on the self-declared administration to release the officials in the presence of their envoy in slovyansk facilitated that and i think possibly analysts will look at this as a smart pr move by moscow to carry favor towards the pro-russian protesters, signs that particularly at this delicate time are now surrounded by the ukrainian army. >> nick, in what way does this development change the big picture? acting president turchynov admitted this week, the country doesn't really control many eastern cities because local officials there, he says, are helpless. has ukraine lost control of the east or incidents like this prove that the tide is turning? >> reporter: well, i think this certainly is a sign of pro-russian protesters deciding to yield a significant bargaining chip they had for a little bit of positive publicity. it helps moscow, perhaps, too, to paint them in a more constructive light. it also, i must point out, too,
of that was on display today at the white house. where president obama and german chancellor angela merkel endeavored to present a united front, punishment if russia does not disengage. >> if it continues to destabilize, eastern ukraine and disrupt this month's presidential election we will move quickly on additional steps. including further sanctions that will impose greater cost but that's a choice facing the russian leadership. gwen: some of the fallout is affecting how americans view their second term president. in the latest "wall street journal"/nbc news poll, nearly half of those surveyed say that the u.s. should be less active in world affairs. and approval of the president's handling of foreign policy has dropped to its lowest point ever. so what did the white house do this week to speak to that? alexis? >> so the president and the administration started the week by talking about another round of tough sanctions. most of the sanctions that started the week that the administration announced were aimed at the circle right around vladimir putin. president putin of russia. it was aimed at about

, because the president has a news conference with the german chancellor angela merkel. you mentioned there was some testy briefs this weekend you. thought maybe there would be questions about that. there were two american reporters, two german reporters called on. the american reporters asked about the crisis in ukraine as well as the death penalty in the botched execution in oklahoma this week. big issues, but no doubt being front and center this week, you would have thought maybe somebody would have asked about it. it's a free country. they can choose to ask or not. but certainly there is a lot of people who have been wondering, you know, when the president is going to be asked about it more. he wasn't candidate about it today in the rose garden. >> big news. ed henry at the white house tonight, thank you, ed. >>> and while republicans continue to press for answers regarding the administration's massive cover-up of the benghazi cover-up, democrats now attempting to move away from the conversation and are doing so in some pretty insensitive ways. for starters, former nfc spokesman t
is not yet but it's going to happen maybe. merkel did not disown him even though she didn't just say the words finance and unnecessary. and up and there was a real strong this very strong language from a previous president from the german chancellor. there is firm about them a twenty fifteen is even as a presidential election and in ukraine's you feel as though the west is finally going to get when you put into them budge. well i don't know but on the other hand it looks like the sanctions so hardworking. the russian economy which wasn't strong to begin with going into this offensive has been downgraded by the imf and a couple of other agencies the economic sanctions may be the most potent weapon that barack obama can wield it. merkel is a smart woman when it comes to the economy so she is she's backing that i think that probably means that to bring the rest of europe along behind and of course the united us in europe is exactly the things let me who doesn't want. i think is probably hoping in this offensive display america off from the europeans in terms of the response to the crisi

-span, president obama and german chancellor angela merkel. they held a press conference. then the united nations security council held a meeting on russian intervention in the ukraine. afterwards, more from the german chancellor as she discussed the future of u.s. relations with her country. obamar today, president and german chancellor held a joint press conference. this discussed additional -- and they discuss a set -- they discuss additional sanctions. >> good morning, everybody. it is always a great pleasure to welcome my friend chancellor merkel to the white house. germany is one of our strongest allies and angela is one of my closest partners. with her indulgence, i want to start by making two brief comments. first, as president, my top priority is doing everything we can to create more jobs and opportunity for hard-working families for our economic strength as a source of strength in the world. this morning, we learned our businesses created 277,000 new jobs last month. all told, our business is now created 9.2 million new jobs over 50 consecutive months of job growth. the grit and determ
projects all german businesses to purge the halter on sanctions against russia and chancellor merkel most probably delivered that message to washington and you're still present obama said about that the question energy and possible sanctions. looking a whole range of issues. energy flows from russia to europe those continued even them in the midst of the cold war at the height of the cold. so the idea that you're going to turn off the tap. on hold russian oil or natural gas exports. i think it is un realistic present obama showed support for kids crack down on the protesting the east of ukraine. he called the team's move to restore order to enable merkel which it was as if they did not talk about it she just said she too would like to see elections carried out an inmate at the present obama again we heard nothing but praise for the government in kiev at one point keeps me to say that they duly elected government in kiev and apparently skipping the fact the ukraine selected president was overthrown and the ukrainians have not yet had the chance to elect their government. again u s presiden
that and they will follow. and that's where i come in. ♪ >> angela merkel is in washington, d.c. to speak with president obama. they are coming out now to make a statement in the rose garden. let's listen in. >> the opportunity is so terrific that it makes other things look less than terrific. yes, it's true we are primarily a chinese company. that will probably look even more so as the third hotel is next 18mpleted in the months. there will come a time when the ratio of domestic to chinese earnings is even greater. >> do you worry you're going to saturate the market and a time when the economy is slowing? last three or quattro years, our hotel, wynn and wynn macao have been .teadily increasing in earnings the seven expensive and well thought-out project. at market has been expanding a rate that has allowed the market to add supply because demand has exceeded it. everyone is experiencing growth year-over-year in spite of the that the amount of enterprise has increased. >> is the government easier to work with in macau? >> it is more predictable. the federal government in united states is much more unpre
this straight. somewhere between the asian pivot, the ukrainian crisis and his meeting with angela merkel the president wants us to believe his top priority is whatever the latest news story is. anybody who goes out in this economy and brags has every worried american asking what planet are you living on? the answer is planet obama. u.s. economic growth in the first quarter was 0.1%. after five years of obama's mismanagement, only bureaucrats and billionaires are doing well. all of the rest are just left out. now don't you think that's right? >> no. look, first of all, no good deed goes unpunished in this country. we have 50 months of job creation. 9 million jobs have been created. we got the best report in years. and we get this kind of stuff. listen, in the "crossfire" tonight we two members of the house appropriations committee. democratic representative barbara lee of oakland, california. welcome to you. republican representative andy harris of maryland. you're both in the "crossfire." i'm going to start with you. i cannot believe that the republicans even today are not willing to at

political theater there. the president appeared with merkel from germany trying to show unity but the fact of the matter is there's a lot of disunity. back home. the voting public in germany is very split on this. they think the sanctions have gone far enough. they rely on russia for a lot of their energy as does a lot of europe. they're worried about prices spiking. although there's an attempt to present a united front, the european and americans interests are diverging here. >> the point of today was to present the unity but we should be clear that the type of sanctions we're talking about that would be tough are down the road at this point. the sector sanctions are if russia makes a move over the border into ukraine. we're talking about individual sanctions and right now it looks like those aren't doing much to change putin's calculus. >> the goal post versus moved throughout this thing. if russia goes in it's changed. >> always backwards. look, obama has adopted the worst possible way to approach a coalition than an adversary which is the lowest common denominator. he insists on unity.
the possibility of new sanctions. and i thought very, very important angela merkel herself raised the issue of nsa and how they've got some real differences with the united states in how we protect the rights of individual citizens while fighting terrorism. very important stuff. but fox news was upset because president obama did not adopt the fox news agenda and no reporter asked a question about benghazi. and i'll tell you what, because any reporter with any real sense knows that benghazi is a phony scandal and it has been from the very beginning. september 11, 2012, before we even knew the ambassador was killed, while the attack was going on, mitt romney blamed it on president obama and the republicans have been using it as a political football ever since. >> you know, congressman darrell issa threw around wild accusation against the obama administration yesterday. listen to this. >> it is disturbing and perhaps criminal in violation of any precedent at least since richard millhouse nixon. >> he said this was the most corrupt president, then he took it back. but i mean, they have gone really wil
